Hellcab, a play by Will Kern, follows the shift of a nameless cabbie on a Thursday that is also Christmas Eve. He is father confessor, friendly neighborhood bartender, and male stripper all rolled into one.
When passengers hop into his car, he doesn't know if they are going to try to convert him to Christianity or come on to him. In the course of the day and night, he sees drug deals, helps a rape victim, tries to intervene in a misguided romance, and rushes a pregnant woman to the hospital. You soon learn why Chicago is called
the Windy City: these people just won't stop talking.
